NEW YORK - International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) has expanded its AI offerings by integrating Meta (NASDAQ:META)'s latest Llama 3 large language models into its Watsonx platform, the company announced today. This move adds to IBM 's existing portfolio of enterprise-ready models and aims to bolster innovation within various industries.

The integration of Llama 3 is part of IBM's ongoing collaboration with Meta, which began with the formation of the AI Alliance late last year. The alliance now boasts over 80 members, including stakeholders from diverse sectors such as industry, startups, academia, research, and government.

IBM has been working closely with enterprises to implement Llama models in their operations. One notable application was the development of a content engine for the Recording Academy, leveraging Llama 2 to generate digital content that aligns with the brand's voice and standards.

Meta's Llama 3 comes with pretrained and instruction fine-tuned language models, featuring 8 billion and 70 billion parameter counts. These models are designed to support a wide array of tasks such as summarization, classification, and question answering. The 8B model focuses on speed and compatibility with edge devices, while the 70B model is tailored for more complex applications like content creation and conversational AI.

According to Meta, internal testing has shown that Llama 3 outperforms its predecessor, Llama 2, and further enhancements are anticipated in the near future. These will include new capabilities, additional model sizes, and a research paper detailing Llama 3's advancements.

IBM also offers the Code Llama 34B model, which is specialized for code generation and translation tasks. With options for both SaaS and on-premises deployment, IBM aims to provide clients with the flexibility to scale AI applications using their data across a broader spectrum of enterprise scenarios.

Both IBM and Meta are committed to fostering a robust ecosystem for AI development, encouraging a community of builders and researchers to collaborate on open and responsible AI innovation. The Watsonx platform is currently available for exploration through a free trial, inviting AI developers to test and build with the new Llama 3 models.

IBM's statement regarding the future of its AI offerings indicates an ambitious direction but also notes that plans are subject to change. The company's broader mission is to assist clients worldwide in leveraging AI and hybrid cloud technologies to transform their operations efficiently and securely.
